Summer to Fall

A funny thing happened while I was busily reworking those summer classics… Fall (as they call it here in the Northern Hemisphere) suddenly arrived..

I spent last week in Minneapolis at the Mall ofAmerica with my parents (yes, a love of shopping is genetic in this family) and it was freezing. Thankfully Maryland isn’t so cold, but it’s certainly turned from maxi skirts and singlet tops to cardigans and jeans.

While at MOA (as the locals call it) I picked up this cardigan from Loft. It’s a colour I’ve been coveting for a while now; almost all the style bloggers I follow seem to work it into their looks. It’s in the yellow family, but a little deeper, maybe a cross between a bright chartreuse and a deeper mustard. I think it works well with neutrals such as navy, black, white and grey as well as brighter shades like the pink and neon scarf I’ve teamed it with today.

My favourite thing about this new purchase? It just says ‘new season’ in one simple piece. Everything else is old (last season or older) but this colour brings it bang up to date.

What colour are you adding to your wardrobe this season?


  1. A yellow cardigan is quite versatile. I love it paired with your scarf. My favorite colors of fall are burgundy, mustard yellow and hunter green.

  2. I'm loving Hunter Green too, but yet to buy anything yet.. maybe some skinny jeans :-)

  3. Luv the colour Bel suits you really well. I need to add some more colour ad my purchases of late have been back to my security blanket of b&w. Hoping pink is in my future. Bec
